When I click the links on the side of the Butterfly forum this is what I see...not sure if it's a glitch or me Confused

It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

links on the side of the Butterfly forum


I just checked and tried clicking on the first link and got something similar, got a notice that the certificate was not up to date and that they cannot guarantee authenticity of the domain. Something @dave will have to look at.

No problems here. There was a FF upgrade, but I didn't do it because I am still on XP. I am planning to get a new computer in a few weeks and upgrade. I am using an older version of FF.

@RoseBlush, how current is your internet security? This was caught by my Kaspersky, not by any browser.
Anyway, I figured that fave was having his weekend and would be taking care of it soon.

Sue ... that's one of the reasons I finally decided to upgrade my computer ... the security issues. I resisted as long as I could because I really don't need a more powerful computer these days. Oh, well. I didn't get a vote.
